Bibliographic Resources on Pacific/Asian Americans.
This bibliographic listing of sources on Pacific/Asian American groups provides titles of existing bibliographies and literature reviews. Over 100 entries are included in the document. Most of the entries were published during the 1970's, with a few dating from the late 1960's and several from 1980 and 1981. The objective is to offer researchers, educators, and other interested people a usuable alternative to a comprehensive listing of historical, creative, and research literature which would contain several thousand individual entries. Entries are arranged in three sections. The first section is a general section on Pacific/Asian Americans. It includes works on teaching strategies for ethnic studies, ethnic information sources in the United States, and a guide to media and materials on ethnic groups. In the second, major section, entries are arranged by nationality (Chinese, Indochinese, Japanese, Koreans, Pacific Islanders, and Filipinos). The third section is on special topics and selected sources on racial/ethnic groups. Included in this section are works which focus on Asian Americans in children's books, cultural heritage, Asian women, the status of social services delivery to minorities in the United States, and drug use and abuse among minorities in the United States. For each entry, information is presented on author, title, number of pages, publisher, and date of publication. (DB)
